My Students

My students are creative, caring and love coming to class everyday. When they arrive, I greet them at the door and they come into classical music playing while they greet one another and then start their morning work. I teach in a Title I school where many of my students receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch. Our classroom is a safe learning environment where they can grow. Our school is one of the oldest buildings in the district which can create some challenges but it has great character. The school is located within walking distance for most of our families. Our mascot is the Eagle!

My Project

My First Grade Students shared the following reasons for wanting flexible seating. We call the flexible stools Wooble Seats in our class.

"We like to move while learning and wooble seats will help us move more."

"Wobble seats will help us pay attention better."

"We need more wobble seats as we only have one and that means we don't get to use it very often."

Many students have trouble sitting and concentrating in standard chairs. Flexible seating keeps them focused for longer periods of time. We will use the flexible seating all day long. Students will be able to use it when completing seat work, during station rotations and when they want to read to themselves.

By funding this project you will be improving time on task and helping us learn more.

Thank you for looking at our project and we hope to be getting our wiggles out on wobble seats soon.
